In a story from Variety, Dan Harris has been tapped by Universal Pictures to pen Dante's Inferno.

The film will be live-action and it's based on the Electronic Arts video game. The plot of the game has the players traveling amidst various levels of hell.

The studio picked up rights to the title last fall. There was a large bidding war for the game before it even had a title.

Harris was also a writer on X2: X-Men United and Superman Returns.
